Dell Streak: Phone or Tablet?
Dell are releasing a new device with a 5-inch screen which will initially be loaded with Android 1.6. More specs available from CNET Australia
The tablet features a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 5MP camera with dual-LED flash, 2GB internal memory and will be sold with a 16GB microSD card. At this stage it is understood that the Streak still runs Android 1.6, although we are confirming with Dell if this will be updated to 2.2 in time for the Australian launch.
Optus will have the Streak exclusively for the first 3 months. It'll be available on the $49 cap plan for an additional handset fee of $7 a month or free on Optus' $59 Cap
, the $79 Cap
and also the $99 Timeless plan
In comparing the Streak to the iPhone screen (which is 3.5-inch) it looks as though the Streak may be better suited to some slightly heavier duty tasks like longer emails or wrangling spreadsheets on the run. What do you think? Will it get to a point where these devices are just a little too big to throw in your pocket?
